About the role

About Stepful

Stepful partners with healthcare institutions to build talent pipelines and career pathways. We are reimagining allied healthcare training with a digital-first environment for student cohorts that prepare job-ready graduates five times faster, at a fraction of the cost. Stepful graduates, primarily from underrepresented communities, go on to work at leading healthcare institutions and report an average 25% income increase after just four months of training. Stepful is backed by Y Combinator and recently closed a round led by AlleyCorp, Reach Capital, and Sempervirens.

Engineering at Stepful

At Stepful, each product engineer is empowered to lead feature-development from end to end. From design, spec, and full-stack development, to data-driven iteration. We encourage engineers to share their best ideas & discuss over alternatives.

Our success metrics (graduation, certification, and placement rate) are directly driven by how well our technology helps our students to overcome their learning challenges. Each engineering project at Stepful is data driven and it’s strictly tied to a core success metric.

  • Build the instrumentation to measure users behavior and iterate obsessively over the User eXperience
  • Build and maintain a robust data infrastructure to help the team make data-driven product improvements

Who You’ll Work with

  • We generally get 80% of the impact with 20% of the effort, and sometimes, we need that to iterate faster.
